Japan Amends Cybersecurity Law for Info Sharing

Japan Amends Cybersecurity Law for Info Sharing

   Tokyo, Dec. 5 (Jiji Press)--Japan's parliament amended Wednesday the cybersecurity law to promote information sharing between the public and private sectors ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympics.
   The amended law, which calls for setting up a public-private council to share cybersecurity-related information, was approved by a majority vote at a plenary meeting of the House of Councillors with support mainly from the Liberal Democratic Party-led ruling coalition.
   The council will comprise officials from the central and local governments, such key infrastructure operators as utilities and financial firms, cybersecurity businesses and educational and research institutes.
   Those members will have confidentiality and information-sharing obligations.
   The council is expected to be set up in April next year.
